Till sampling, NTS 64E/15, 16, northeast Saskatchewan, 2004.
(requires an Internet connection)
In 2004, till samples were collected at 137 sites in northeast Saskatchewan near MacKenzie Lake, Zengle Lake and Crane Island, an area referred to as the NW Reindeer Lake area. They were spaced 1 to 2 km where accessibility allowed. Bulk till samples (~10 kg) were taken where possible from the C-horizon in pits hand dug to an average depth of 1 m. These samples will be submitted for kimberlite and base metal indicator minerals. A 1 kg sample was also collected from each pit for geochemical and textural analyses. A summary of the work can be found in Saskatchewan Geological Survey Summary of Investigations 2003, Miscellaneous Report 2003-4.2.
Digital report on CD and web.
Sample analyses in progress. Till samples will be analysed for major and trace elements plus Au. Pt and Pd on some samples.
Geochem Maps Available:
